jacks Amanda

"Singing while cooking is a must — it makes food taste better!"

Amanda's traditional Southern hospitality is warm and welcoming, her energy infectious. She loves to can & pickle in the summer, makes stews & fresh bread in the winter, and loves to catch, clean & cook her own fish just like her daddy taught her!

When not at Hipcooks, you'll find Amanda singing away, in her own home kitchen and at the Seattle Ladies's Choir.

"Never fear, butter is here!"

 It's her favorite ingredient. A close second: potatoes. Russet, ube (the purple yams), sweet potato, fingerlings. Mashed, gratin, fried, covered in salt, cream, sugar. "You name it, I will eat it. Just add butter!"
